Lauren began her eating disorder recovery journey the summer of 2012. Over the years, she has worked very hard and spent a lot of time healing her relationship with food, exercise, and her body. Throughout her journey, she has found writing to be a very helpful tool, whether it be expressing her feelings through poetry or journaling about what she is experiencing and coming to realize. Lauren knows there is a reason she was given the challenges she has faced and she believes it was to help other people on their recovery journeys. No matter how far you are in your recovery journey, there will always be more to learn and understand. Lauren shares her poems and articles with the Recovery Warriors Community in hopes of providing a new perspective, inspiration, and support to all of her readers.
